It's the first week of September, and many of us are entering new stages of our lives: new school years, new colleges, new jobs. The prayers of all of us at St. George's are with you. These new beginnings can be difficult and challenging times, but also bring new opportunities for sharing the love of Jesus.
On Sunday, Rev. Eliakim reminded us of the importance of being careful in these new relationships. It's important that we maintain "Godly company" for ourselves. Even as we seek to build new friendships and share the Gospel, we need to be aware of dangers of spending too much time with people who influence us to do the wrong things.
Don't forget our International Evening on Saturday 16th September - all welcome for food, fun and friendship!
We hope everyone is enjoying the summer! We continue to pray for smooth travels and a safe return for all our church members who are away at the moment. For those still in Birmingham, I'm afraid the forecast for the Bank Holiday weekend isn't too good...
On Rev. Eliakim continued with the second part of his important messge on salvation. He showed us how Christ's death on the cross has freed us from slavery both to sin and to the legalistic approach of the Old Testament. We are saved not by our own power or our own works, but by the grace of God, available to everyone by faith in Christ's resurrection. This faith is changing our lives every day!
As Romans Chapter 11 continues, "Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!"
